  1. Punk had 7 years to show up for work. Impact, ROH, NJPW... Are you trying to say that he happened to get the itch to wrestle for AEW because they were running shows in Chicago or something? I might be a mile off the mark but it can be coincidence that his return to wrestling led to him going over everyone he faced and becoming world champion.
  2. It's more towards the treatment. Punk railed against Rock being able to walk in and be treated like a main eventer, get title shots etc That's what Punk did. He took 7 years off and only came back when a booker promised to give him everything he wanted.
  3. What pisses me off the most is all the missed opportunities Punk could have taken advantage of if he was willing to play ball. When they ran Punk v Eddie and Kingston hit the back first to open the match my brain instantly booked Kingston winning in 5 seconds and then Punk having to work for a rematch. Give Punk a hurdle in AEW in the form of the "skinny fat line cook" looking guy. When Punk was cutting promos sitting cross legged, I was imagining the lights going out and Malakai Black appearing in the ring, sitting cross legged, in front of him. Punk v HOB would have been great. Punk v Hangman. Punk v Omega Punk v Danielson So many possibilities, and instead they feed his ego, steamroll him to the title, and then give him his own show with the roster of his choice. He became everything he hated about the part timers like Rock and Goldberg. In hindsight he didn't hate them, he was just jealous. Punk in name. Punk in nature. Fuck that guy.
  4. Geebuz help me if TK crowns an Interim Real World Champion...
  5. I was stoked when Punk came back. It was a huge moment and a boost to get AEW noticed more. About 6 months in I expressed my concerns: Punk was steamrolling the roster. He beat everyone. When compared to Danielson it was staggering. When they made him World Champion I protested. He didn't need it. You don't put the belt on Andre. Then they gave him his own show with some authority over who was on that roster. Insane. The Hangman & Kingston "promos" look prophetic now.
  6. Fuck that guy. I hope Hunter and Vince are smart enough to never call him. Absolute cancer.
  7. I think Priest is walking out champion. There will be a moment in the tag match where he will need to decide between taking a bullet (chair shot?) for Finn or bailing to keep himself fresh. He bails, cashes in on an exhausted Seth, leaves the new WHC.
  8. Love or hate what he did in the ring, Wyatt was always trying to push things creatively and present wrestling in a different way. He could have been an amazing agent or part of the booking team going forward. I would have loved to see what he could do if he was given a pocket of NXT to work with and develop... Fuuuuuck this hurts. Dude was my age. Condolences to his family.
  9. Bianca joining the Hurt Business is the way to go. They are faces so no stress about losing merch opportunities. And agree on Priest. I'm so done with... whatever Rollins is meant to be.
  10. "Always leave em wanting more" If it's not Cody or Bron at Mania next year then they are shark jumping. The gue issue is you have to get through SEVEN MORE MONTHS of Roman as champ where he will be unbeatable. Everything he does now is just wheel spinning until Mania. And don't get me started on the turn... Geebuz that is just so dumb. Frame it anyway you like but Jimmy and Jey both look like idiots coming out of this.
  11. Pretty good show, ruined by an AWFUL main event. The flip flopping Usos are getting to Big Show levels of stupid. Get the World Title on Logan Paul already.
  12. Man... If Rock lost about 60 lbs and trimmed down, went back to Hollywood Rock/Rundown era shape... Just really lean... And then started playing villain roles in like a Guy Ritchie or a Tarantino or a Coen Brothers film. Something with snappy dialogue where his charisma can really pump up the volume on a scene. Make that happen Hollywood, and he'd go from overexposed to movie star again in a heartbeat.
  13. Punk, Dax, Cash, Starks, Cassidy vs Black, Matthews, King, White, Juice No idea if this works from a kayfabe POV but I think it would be pretty cool. Build from Punk/Starks distrust into Starks v Cassidy for the International Title. CMFTR v HOB for the Trios Title
  14. Roman brings in ZIlla to team with Solo and outnumber the Usos. Jimmy and Jey ask their dad to come in for 'one more match'. Roman puts Rikishi out for good, either before the match (if 'Kish can't go) or after the match. Just when all hope looks lost, they finally get The Rock back to help the Usos Usos v Solo/Zilla & Roman v Rock at Mania.
  15. That's highlighted even more by guys like DDP and Batista turning up in their mid 30s. It's why someone like Garcia is so fascinating. How quickly do you build him up and push him? How long is it before he becomes stale or the crowd decide he's not going to be a top guy because "He's been around for ages and done nothing". In theory he could be a main eventer for 15+ years...
  16. Think they run Seth v Balor one more time to keep the implosion of Judgment Day going. Is Devlin still joining them? Or joining Balor against them? A Balor/Devlin tag team could actually be pretty great... Knight taking the title from Theory feels like the right move. Sami/KO vs Imperium maybe? If they have Riddle backing them up then maybe this is this where the rumored Ilja call up happens?
  17. I'll take a stab at Chris Jericho being one of them.
  18. Now that Luton Town have made the Premier League, Vince should run Mania at their stadium. It holds just over 10,000 for football. Im sure with the right set up in place they could announce a figure at least 5 times that. Maybe count all the people living in the houses that are technically attached to the stadium?
  19. FTR should come out like the wrestling coach on South Park. Just smash both teams in one of these random matches and get on the mic with: "That's not REAL tag team wrestling!!!"
  20. Roman is the biggest change by far. I feel like promos are less... stilted? Paused? It used to be. That every promo. Sounded. Like. This. But these days the promos feel a little more natural, they flow better. I think not having the crowd there meant that everyone relaxed a little more and let things happen a little more organically.
  21. My all time favorite Cena match. I need to rewatch it but, on the LWP scale, it was a full 5 stars. Just watched the finish on YT. Cena's selling is brilliant. Umaga is amazing in this role. Estrada does his part. The commentary team are on point. 5 stars all around. "Even a monster's gotta breathe!!" - This might be up there with some of JR's best ever work. Cody and Roman should steal this finish for Mania.
  22. Time for the long overdue AEW Mixed Tag Team Titles*. Cole/Baker Perry/Jay Sammy/Tay Kingston/Soho King/Hart Kip/Ford Blade/Bunny OC/Statlander That's a pretty decent KOR style tournament right there. *Please don't TK.
  23. Not a baseball fan by any stretch but Domingo German's perfect game is already making the rounds in my social circle here in Melbourne.
  24. Heel Perry should come out in a black turtle neck with a dark suede jacket. Then he should look straight down the camera and say "Christian was right" Then leave.
